The Longest Journey Isn't Over Yet!

22_66745440.jpg

Lately, I've felt like Telltale Games is single-handedly keeping the adventure game genre alive, but now Funcom is jumping into the fray headfirst with their recent announcement that the third game in The Longest Journey saga is now in pre-production! I thoroughly enjoyed Dreamfall: The Longest Journey on my Xbox (well, my Xbox 360, as I played it well after release as a downloadable classic!), although I have to admit that I never played the first one.

Ragnar Tørnquist, creator of The Longest Journey saga, founded a new studio called Red Thread Games, and he's spearheading development of Dreamfall Chapters. He'll also continue in an advisory role in Funcom's recently launched MMO The Secret World, but focusing on Dreamfall Chapters.

"I'm very excited to finally have the opportunity to continue the 'The Longest Journey' saga," says Ragnar Tørnquist. "Ever since we ended 'Dreamfall' on a nail-biting cliffhanger, players have been rightfully demanding a sequel, and my deal with Funcom will finally make that possible. I'm extremely grateful to Funcom for this unique and exciting opportunity, and I can't wait to dive back into the universe I helped create more than a decade ago, and continue the story players have been waiting for these past six years."

Honestly, it's been so long since I played the game, I don't even remember a cliffhanger! Considering the timespan between games, Dreamfall Chapters had better have one hell of a "Previously On..." segment at the start! (Oh, and please release it on consoles, as I don't own a PC! Thanks!)

What do you mean you never played the first one?
It's only one of the best adventure games ever created.
Seriously Wootini, do yourself a favor and go play it.
I'm pretty sure it's available on GoG.

I haven't played any of them and have been wanting to for ages.
Apparently Dreamfall has been taken off of the Xbox live marketplace too... Sigh.

And girls who like girls who like rumble packs!
